It’s the most wonderful time of year! However, I am so busy with holiday parties. With lots of pictures being taken, I always want to look my absolute best but sometimes styling my hair takes so much time! Plus, I have very processed hair so I only shampoo my hair every 3 to 4 days to avoid drying it out even more. When I style my hair with heat I feel like it looks flat and needs washing more often.

Recently, my family and I had a weekend packed with holiday events: Christmas at the Princess, Breakfast with Santa, a media event at Market Street Kitchen and then a holiday party! I wanted to save time and energy but also look my best so I took a trip to Blo Blow Dry Bar in Scottsdale! I have never had a blow out before and was excited to try one out at the newest location of the original North American blow dry bar!

Blo is a bright, modern and airy spot with comfortable chairs and friendly staff. We start out deciding on the style for my hair. They have a menu that has several styles to choose from. I decide to go for the Holly Would, a bouncy and flirty do with plenty of body.

The Process

A refreshing shampoo to start.

A refreshing shampoo to start.

First up, a shampoo with an amazing scalp massage. I love to have my hair shampooed, it is honestly one of the best parts of going to the salon. Once my locks are fresh we head over to the chair.

Here they apply products to help the style have the volume and staying power of a good blo out while using a blow dryer to smooth out and dry my hair. I asked my stylist, Jordan, about a blow out. Specifically, how long can I expect my hair to have the volume I was looking for. I was informed it should last a few days.

Next, Jordan curls my hair and pins it so they don’t lose their bounce while he curls the rest of my hair.


The final look! I love how sexy my hair looks!

Finally, I am done! My hair looks and smells fantastic! It only took about forty minutes from beginning to end all while I sat back in the plush white chairs and let someone else do all the work! And my hair looked sleek and gorgeous all weekend!

I love that it is the best part of a salon trip: the shampoo and the style without the wait or the cost of a salon. They are perfect for a girls' night out, a Holiday party, romantic dinner, and even just because you feel like it!
